Paris! City of lights, fashion, excitement, romance! That's what I wanted to convey in this sweet little tag. The tag itself is actually a stamped image of a Hero Arts collage stamp, which I collected a few years ago. At first, I wanted to highlight the Eiffel Tower image with a stamped domino. I had made a domino with an Eiffel tower image some weeks ago in a class with Ginny. However, the domino seemed to make the image "top heavy", so my next thought was to use a Tim Holtz clock face image. Not having one of a size to fit the clock face on the stamp, I decided that the inks themselves were enough of an embellishment, especially since the paper image the tag was going to be mounted on was delicate in color and design. The Eiffel tower charm was the perfect accent!
This tag has a little booklet at the bottom, patterned after the little Halloween booklet Lisa did for the new Hero Arts and Sizzix dies. I used Spellbinder's dies instead, and Graphic 45 images.
